Vanity of vanities, all is vanity

My story, while upsetting, shows that through God’s love and power, nobody is beyond saving.

I grew up attending church and believed myself to be a Christian. However, I didn’t really know what being a Christian meant.

I stopped attending church as soon as I was old enough, and until 2020 the extent of my faith was believing that God existed and created the universe, and occasionally praying or attending church. I thought this was enough and that I was ‘good with God’.

I lived by my own rules, believing I could pick which parts of the Bible to follow. I didn’t look to pursue a relationship with Jesus or allow him to have any part in my life.

God was my genie – I only spoke to him when I wanted something (mostly very shallow things).
